Aberdeen Tournament 2015

12-13 September 2015, Albury and Westburn

Campbell Morrison won the Aberdeen & Crathes handicap weekend beating Charles Henderson +2 on time in the final, a tense game in which Charles made some progress with his bisques until Campbell eventually hit and went to rover. Charles continued to make hoops but then ran out of bisques and Campbell looked set to finish until an attempted rover peel came to grief giving Charles a glimmer of hope. He couldn’t quite manage to draw level in the time turn, however, and Campbell was declared the winner. He was frankly lucky to be in the final at all: the talented Block 2 winner Simon Robins came so close to beating him in the semi-final at Westburn that the result, 18-10, had already been reported to the manager. This was hastily withdrawn when Simon missed a six foot peg-out, pegging out one ball, and Campbell made the most of his opportunity and finished with a nicely controlled three ball break. Blocks 3 and 4 were won by David Houston and Charles Henderson respectively with Charles emerging the victor in the semi-final at Albury +9. In Block 2, Ian Hall was equal with Simon on 3 wins but was edged out by Simon on net points.

Wilkinson Sword 2015

12 July, Kelvingrove

The 2015 Wilkinson Sword inter-club doubles tournament was played at Kelvingrove on two excellent but damp lawns following some very heavy overnight rain. Despite some light showers during the day the lawns soon dried out and keeping the balls in play became a challenge as the day progressed. With a good entry of six teams a round robin with five rounds of 14 point games, each lasting 1 hour 30 minutes, was used.

The fifth round effectively produced a final with Glasgow having to beat Meadows to go to four wins each.  The match started with Robert Inder going to hoop 4.  John Surgenor then went round to hoop 5 with a leave where both opposition balls were left at their respective hoops.  Chris Martin then used a bisque turn to set up a break which he took round to hoop 6.  With time running out Durward then produced a comedy of errors, (rolling into hoops, missing rushes etc) and despite a mad sprint to score hoop 4 he was unable to add to the Glasgow tally.
